strings. >> a lot to talk about with david gergen, chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and dana bash. jessica, we heard the president make this a promise that it's going to become more transparent. he says it was already happening before the snowden leaks. but is that really realistic? >> well, as you point out, wolf, he did say that he wanted more transparency back in may. he said that. that was right before edward snowden's first leak was in june. so his assertion is that the snowden leaks just sped up a process that was going to happen any way. well, we also have to take a bigger look at the big picture, which is did snowden actually lead to these new safeguards he put in place? we know that two democratic senators have been calling for more transparency and even reforms for more than a year now. sn when the head of the intelligence community went before congress, he's admitted now that he was less than truthful in talking about them. so that was all before snowden. would this have happened without snowden? we can't know, the train has left the station, but it does seem to ha
, as opposed to the nsa surveillance program. dana, what is the reaction on capitol hill? i know the lawmakers are in recess, on vacation, the president is going on vacation tomorrow but we saw what speaker bayner said, suggesting the president was concerned about saving face than defending the programs. >> that's right. look, i mean, this is kind of the one issue or few issues, i should say where republicans are supportive of the president. this nsa program they say has been helpful and they have been kind of his biggest cheerleaders on this while the democrats, many of the democrats, as jessica was just talking to, leading liberal democratic senators have been maybe the most vocal in terms of criticism. this changed that a little bit. but one thing i would say about peter king, one of the lawmakers you were talking about, he said the president is on an apology tour. that illustrates the flight within the republican party because peter king, as you know is making noise about being president and he's trying to push the wing of the republican party that is more hockish against those on the repu
those represent, conservatives do not? >> that is a big part of -- dana rohrabacher was just speaking a few days ago where he basically tipped his hand in this. it's basically if the planet is warming then we'll need government intervention. because we don't like government intervention, ergo the planet cannot be warming. and it's a reverse engineered logic that gets them to opposing it. >> polls show it's a pressing issue for americans, an issue you examine in the documentary. let's take a look at your work. >> according to a recent gallup poll, only one-third of americans are greatly worried about climate change. what can possibly explain this apathy when 99.8% of scientific study support the existence of human-caused global warming? well, some of the credit goes to the so called experts who peddle dubious science to counter any government attempt to tackle the issue, the deniers. >> if you do nothing about this at all, for the whole of the next 23 years, the worst that will happen, using the u.n.'s own estimates, is a one fahrenheit degree warming, which will be largely harmless an
sunday at 11:00 a.m. eastern. "state of the union" with candy crowley begins right now. >>> i'm dana bash in for candy crowley with breaking news we're following out of syria. a u.s. official tells cnn there's very little doubt that the assad government used chemical weapons against civilians. syria's government today said it will allow u.n. weapons inspectors to investigate the site where the alleged attack occurred on wednesday. the syrian government denies responsibility and is blaming rebels for the attack that reportedly kd
, the robin thick song. he wants to know when did dana lohse become a backup singer. you know. [ laughter ] ♪ >> announcer: stephanie miller. >> stephanie: all right. [ applause ] >> stephanie: you could alternatively put a boinking turtle in there. oh, no. [♪breaking news theme] >> stephanie: dozens of gay couples began tying the not in minnesota. as you know, every straight couple ever is so romantic. [♪ romantic music ] >> stephanie: it's a perfect love story. a tennessee woman is accused of hiding meth in her dentures so she could pass it to her would-be husband in jail. she planned to marry an inmate and inquired as to how she would be able to kiss him. after an officer noticed she was having trouble keeping her dentures in place, they investigated and found a package of meth. >> that is true love. >> stephanie: and that is love. would you smuggle meth in your dentures for somebody? i mean come on. that is love. >> no. >> stephanie: all right. speaking of love. this is actually a question. robert -- let's see, writes, steph, i have a problem which i thought you would be able to
disrupting how television is being produced. dana brunetti joins us here at post 9. it's a treat for me because this show is a personal obsession of mine. it's good to have you, dana. >> thanks for having at the. >> how much did the emmy's change the game? >> it made history. it's the first time a show like that has ever been nominated for an emmy. when we set it up at netflix, we sort of assumed we wouldn't be eligible, but the industry came around as we went into production. it's a big game changer as far as being nominated and recognized by the industry as that's a viable means for quality content to get to an audience. >> can you talk about the original pitch meetings? because netflix hadn't done anything like this before and even they said what a massive bet this was for them. there were worries about the distribution models, worries about letting all the episodes float at once, losing that sort of weight, that drip, drip, drip that dramas have lived off for decades. >> as far as releasing them ought al once, we've seen a lot of the drips. a lot of people are still discovering the
analyst gloria borger and chief congressional correspondent dana bash. the president hasn't made a final decision but everyone knows he has decided he is going to go ahead and launch some sort of strike against targets in syria. >> at this point it's not if but when. i think when you hear the president speak that way, it's clear he's got a lot of options on the table and maybe he was still deciding about a particular option, but i think you would have to assume given the fact that what we saw today was pretty much of a roll-out, first from the secretary and then the president himself. there was a background briefing for journalists with senior administration officials talking about the evidence on chemical weapons. they're clearly making their case. now the issue has been decided in great britain. they made a point of saying that they've got france and turkey with them. so i think what we're seeing is the beginning of the explanation of why they're going to go in -- >> they may have france and turkey's verbal support but i don't see any military hardware other than u.s. military hardware
. >> all right, dana, i have a feeling many updates for you throughout the morning. we'll check back in. >>> joining us now with reaction and sort of deep thoughts on this breaking news, dan rather and anchoring manager, thanks for bringing some breaking news to us. i'm just kidding. >> i'd love to take credit for it. >> what are your thoughts on this, on this nsa leak situation broadly, but especially this latest breaking news. they've threatened for a while that edward snowden is going to try to get out of the airport and try to find even temporary asylum in russia. now it's happened. that's not good for a u.s./russia diplomatic relations. >> sthere wasn't much they coul do about it. but the important thing about this in terms of international relationships is that the united states under the obama administration some time ago said they wanted to reboot relationships with russia, get things better. things have, in fact, gotten worse to the point now but this setback. that's the overall framework of what's happening. this does not look good for the obama administration. they'll have th
, the wings that chris christie and rand paul represent, dana wrote a piece, rand paul rebuked on foreign aid. i don't know if you saw this. the 86-13 vote, he wanted to strip all aid to egypt. i love that he brought up oh, you know, detroit's this and we should be doing -- he wouldn't vote to give money to detroit either. >> right. he wouldn't give money to anybody. go on that side of the discussion because we're still having a discussion about who gets money. so yeah, then you can't be into the discussion. you have to have your own discussion. >> stephanie: you finished chatting amongst yourself. peter in ithaca. hi. >> caller: i think you're giving rand paul -- they're not giving him his due. i think they ripped between him and john mccain over foreign policy. mccain wants to go to war. at the drop of a hat. rand paul wants us to get out. and -- >> stephanie: rand paul wants us to do more than get out. >> excuse me? >> stephanie: rand paul wants to do more than get out. okay, that was a troll. i'm sure he had more thoughts directly from rush limbaugh. 29 minutes after the hour. back with r

wouldn't shut down because of a battle over health care. dana bash is watching what's going on, getting reaction to the news conference. is this really what the republicans are threatening to do, shut down the government to try to kill obama care? >> reporter: some are absolutely. i spoke with ted cruz, the republican senator for texas. he said before leaving for recess that he believes if th is the most critical, fundamental time for republicans to make good on their promise to appeal obama care by making this threat that the government is going to run out of money by the end of september and they're not going to vote on funding it unless obama care is defunded. and he's taunting fellow republicans saying they're scared, that's why they may not go his way. but they really are split. he's spending all of august with petitions and trying to push republican leaders to go forward on the strategy. but even the most fiscally conservative republicans are saying for many reasons this is not the best way to go. if you take obama care out of this, there are still questions about how republicans
of a threat. but dana lash, she is on the other side of the fence, she tweeted this. this is the same naacp who called a black man beaten by an sieu an uncle tom on tape. what do you think about it? i think we asked people for e-mails. >> brian: a lot of people saying during what president bush's time, look what bill maher and others said about him. lesley writes from florida and says any american sure the right to mock the president. he isn't our king or emperor. >> gretchen: her she will said, when did it become such a big deal to joke about the president? it's been going on throughout our history. really? investigate the clown? >> peter: and if it had been a clown with a bush or reagan mask, nobody would have said a word about it, according to dennis in ohio. charles from oklahoma, i think we should respect the office of the president whether we voted for him or not. >> gretchen: all right. that -- it's a controversial story. i think we'll have comments. >> brian: we know one thing, like it or not, there is a clown at a kinko's right now writing up a resume hoping to get another job. >>
